Hunter's Hope (Vampire Motorcycle Club #2) by Alyssa Day


I had been waiting for this one since January. Bane's Choice, the first book in the series, was my first read of the year. I didn't plan for this series to be my first and last reads of 2021 but it is kind of cool that it worked out that way.  

Here is the Blurb for Hunter's Hope:

Hunter Evans risked his life again and again as a firefighter until the night he died saving a child...only to be reborn as a vampire. Now the man who lived his life as the quintessential “nice guy” must find a way to conquer the deadly urges that threaten to turn him feral. When his own actions put a beautiful woman in danger, he vows to protect her…even from himself.

Alice Darlington has a secret of her own: she sees ghosts. She thought she’d done a good job of keeping it under wraps—until now. A terrible threat from her past is hunting her down in order to use her power for dark purposes. Now she’s on the run and doesn't know who to trust or where to go.

When Hunter and Alice team up to battle the dangers coming at them from all sides, they’re forced to rely on each other. But Hunter doesn’t know how long he can keep the beast inside him away from the woman it craves…

I LOVED the first book in the series, and I really really wanted to love this one. I liked it, but I didn't love it. The book relied way too heavily on comedy, which to many is not going to be a bad thing at all. But if you have been reading my reviews for a while you know romantic comedy is not my favorite romance subgenre. 

It was nice that the second book was on Hunter, and we were not left wondering for too long what happened after his change. So although this can be easily read as a standalone, I think you will miss one very important part if you don't read the first book. And the first book was amazing, so you really should start there!

Hunter is an adorable and very sweet character. He used to be a firefighter and save lives for a living. He is struggling with the whole "being a vampire" thing. 

Alice is artsy, brave, and has a sad past. The two of them make a sweet couple and you can't help but love them. 

The book was funny and very entertaining. But as I said, I feel like it relied a little too much on that. Alice has a sad background and the "bad guys" obsession with her would have made a lot more sense if there was less comedy and a little more of that heavy past. For example, she sees ghosts- Why? What does she do to them? How is that power of hers useful to the warlocks? ...

Hunter's Hope is a fun read, but it is for the lover of romantic comedy and not me- a lover of heavy (or cheesy) paranormal. In other words, great book for the right audience, I am not that audience. It is a 3 out of 5 from me!

The Cursed King (Inferno Rising #4) by Abigail Owen

This series has been an absolutely delight and I am so glad I've read it. The Rogue King , the first book in the series is still very much my favorite. I discovered Abigail Owen through that book and have read a few of her other books since, this series -obviously-, and others. I highly recommend you all give this wonderful author a try. Blurb: He will burn. She will rise. Airk Azdajah, the rightful King of the White Clan, spent half a millennium being tortured by the false High King Pytheios. The only reason he’s alive is a curse— the man to kill Airk will be consumed in his own fire. Which is why Pytheios kept Airk alive, barely, unable to shift in his prison cage, driving the creature half of him into madness. Airk escaped, but he’ll never be truly free. What good is a king who can never let his feral dragon loose, never fly, and never lead his people? He’s better off dead. Angelika Amon is the last unmated phoenix. The problem? She has no powers. Zip. Zilch. Angelika hates bein

The Warlord (Rise of the Warlords #1) by Gena Showalter

I discovered Gena Showalter long after her Lords of the Underworld series had started. I have those books, but I haven't read them all. I have however read many of her other smaller series. My favorite still the one that introduced me to her books in 2018, Shadow and Ice  (Gods of War).  The Warlord  is the start of a new series, but if you have read Lords of the Underworld  some bits will connect. It is not necessary you read them though, gods know I have not. They sit on my middle shelf and I stare at them daily, does that count? hehe Here is the blurb: For centuries, Taliyah Skyhawk has prepared to become Harpy General, leader of the deadliest female army in existence. One of the requirements? Remain a virgin. But, for a chance to save her people, she must wed the fearless leader of the Astra Planeta, Alaroc Phaethon. The time has come for Roc to sacrifice another virgin bride to his god. There has never been a woman alluring enough to tempt him from his path. No warrioress po

Promises and Pomegranates (Monsters & Muses #1) by Sav R. Miller

I was very excited about this read. The reviews are good, the people recommending it were people whose recommendations I have liked in the past. And in the end, at did like this one. But I will confess from the start that Promises and Pomegranates  did not blow me away. Blurb: Elena To most, Kal Anderson is a villain. Harbinger of death, keeper of souls, frequenter of nightmares. Doctor Death. Hades incarnate. They say he stole me. Usurped my fiancĂ© and filled the cracks in my heart with empty promises. Imprinted his crimson fingerprints on my psyche and tried to set me free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was my choice to stay. Kal To most, Elena Ricci is an innocent. Goddess of springtime, lover of poetry, angel of my nightmares. Little one. Persephone personified. They say I ruined her. Shattered her virtue and devoured her soul like a succulent pomegranate. Embedded my evil as deep as I could possibly get and tried to set her free. They’re not wrong, per se. Except it was she
